Counselor's Educational Background

Mr. Steve King - This is my 27th year in education with the last 21 as a High School Guidance Counselor. This will be my 17th year at Oakville High School. I have earned both my Bachelor of Education and Master of Education-Counseling from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I also have a Master of Science in Secondary School Administration from Southwest Baptist University, in Bolivar Missouri.

Dr. Jennifer Gross – Having grown up in the Mehlville School District, I am very excited to be working at Oakville High School. I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Benedictine College, my master’s degree in Education/Counseling and my Educational Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction from Missouri Baptist University, and my Educational Doctorate in Leadership from Lindenwood University. During the 2009/2010 school year, I worked as the Alternative Education Counselor at St. Clair High School, and have worked with the freshmen at Oakville since 2010.  I enjoy working with my students as they begin their high school career and love watching them mature into young adults!
